The only Ferrari Enzo ever finished in Matte Nero Opaco will be offered with no reserve in RM Sotheby’s Sealed Sale on December 5-7, 2022.
Ferrari built just 400 Enzos between 2002 and 2004 and chassis 136069 is one of the last and most special examples to roll off Maranello’s production line. It boasts full Ferrari Classiche certification and bears just 5730km on its odometer.
The one-of-a-kind matte black machine was delivered at a time when Ferrari’s colour palette was largely limited to the traditional red, yellow or black hues, with a handful of cars finished in silver, grey, blue or white.
It was only the Brunei royal family’s standing as one of Ferrari’s most important customers that meant that the marque agreed to paint its flagship hypercar in the unique colour. The royal family of Brunei had already previously ordered several one-off and bespoke Ferraris such as the FX and F90.
Maranello completed chassis 136069 in October 2004 and was specified with a Nero leather interior and Nero carpets to go with its unique Nero Opaco paintwork. Rosso instruments and larger bucket seats completed the specification and the car was initially kept in London before being relocated to the Asia-Pacific region.
Carrozzeria Zanasi – the official paint shop for limited-production Ferraris – recently subjected the car to a restoration totalling over €110,000 prior to its consignment.
RM Sotheby’s has not included a pre-auction estimate in the car’s listing, but its unique specification means that it could breach the $4.3m threshold stated by Hagerty for an example in concours condition.
